For removing a maximum of dust and mites, vacuuming is the best friend of people with allergies. But do all vacuum cleaners do their best to help us?

We do not all have a housekeeper. However, more and more people become allergic and the best way to remove allergens (dust mites, animal hair),  is regular vacuuming everywhere: floor, upholstery, bedding etc.

There's a small problem though: the vacuum cleaner pushes dust in a saturated air. However, when our nose and lungs are designed to remove small particles from the air we breath in, they do not stop the smallest parts of dust, less than 0.65 microns.

A regular vacuum cleaner becomes a sprayer of mites and pollen, which only a few microns. It means that to avoid breathing the dust after or while vacuuming, it is essential to have the cleaner equipped with a HEPA filter (high efficiency particulate air) at least of level 13. Allergic people really see the difference.

Classification of vacuum filters.  It is based on the number of unfiltered particles less than 0.3 microns left suspended in the air.

  • EPA (Efficiency Particulate Air) 10: leaves a maximum of 50,000 unfiltered particles
  • EPA 11: 5000 particles
  • EPA 12 500 particles
  • HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) 13 : 50 particles
  • HEPA 14: 5 particles
